Btw what up with this Bryce Harper fellow?

Dave (in MA)

Saw elsewhere...
Bryce Harper's contract with the Phillies is for 13 years. When it's done, the Mets will still have 4 years left on Bobby Bonilla's contract, and he last played for them in '99, and retired in '01.

Can someone define 'emerging economy' for me seeing as how Turkey has been around thousands of years and all that:

https://www.bloomberg.com/opinion/articles/2019-02-28/orban-s-risky-plans-to-restrict-hungary-s-debt-to-nationals

Even when they start out with reasonable economic policies, nationalists tend to take their pursuit of sovereignty too far. Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban’s handling of Hungary’s public debt is a case in point...


Lowering foreign currency-denominated debt is generally smart policy since it reduces a country’s exposure to exchange rate risks. Turkey’s recent economic troubles have revealed the danger of having a lot of dollar-denominated debt when the dollar is appreciating (and the lira plunging). And Turkey isn’t the only emerging economy that has become more dependent on foreign currency funding in the last decade: Malaysia, South Africa and Thailand have opened themselves up to the same kind of turbulence, as the European Central Bank showed in a December report focusing on emerging markets’ economic vulnerabilities.

Great Caesar's Ghost,
Orwell, Anthony Burgess and even Lewis Carroll couldn't conjure that 12:43 lunacy.
Do they require NHS docs to put the dude in the stirrups and have the poor saw bones take a gander up the guy's transmission tunnel to see if he can spot a cervix that has spontaneously sprouted due to the demented dude's fervent wishing upon a star he had one?
Gotta be a hoax, doesn't it?

Ralph L

those NJ, NY, CT, MA, IL, leavers are bringing their politics here.

We've had this problem locally since Marylanders came down to run a new Fairchild aircraft plant during WWII, and it just got worse after textiles collapsed and the Research Triangle got going. At least the Mexicans aren't voting yet.

NC would be nicely red but for all the Yankee leavers who came after the native whites began switching parties in the early 70's.

And please pardon this comment in advance but a question just popped into my head thanks to the NHS;
When some guy who thinks he's a chick gets his plumbing rerouted and then subsequently has an encounter of the amorous variety does he, upon reaching a climactic crescendo...um, how to say this...still summon forth the male ejecta?

Ralph L

It almost sounds like a woman who says she's a man can't get her cervix checked--"not invited."

The first story was covered, the follow up was smothered:

LOS ANGELES -- A woman charged in the brutal attack on a 92-year-old grandfather out walking in Willowbrook, Calif., was sentenced to 15 years in prison Thursday.

Laquisha Jones, 30, of Los Angeles was charged with felony elder abuse in December.

Witnesses said Jones pummeled Rodolfo Rodriguez with a brick. He suffered a shattered jaw and broken ribs.

Does a newly minted chick require a prostate exam is where I think you're going. I haven't gone that deep into that nightmare. Can you imagine if a radiologist was forced to take an X-Ray of a limb a guy had amputated just because he felt like it was still there?

Pinandpuller

Going around barriers seems to have caught up to them:

The three victims who were killed in a pickup truck that was destroyed when it was struck by two LIRR trains traveling in opposite directions were fathers who all worked at a Long Island supermarket located roughly half a mile from the crash scene, co-workers said Thursday.

Who was the blond questioning Cohen? Straight blond hair, resembled Blackburn a bit but in Congress.


pin, if you google House Oversight Committee, and you'll find a link that will show you all the pictures and you can solve this mystery for yourself.
I used it a couple of times yesterday. They are sorted by party affiliation, so based on the craziness of the question, you know where to start!
If she was berating Cohen, it's the R rep from W VA.
I don't know if the more preferred sites work or not.

Now I know why I never watch the news.


Will you explain why you then posted what followed?

If it's to engender empathy for the complete lowest of the low that our LEOs have to deal with, I get it, you have been successful, and you don't need to persist on my behalf.

My thanks to whomever posted the link to Tucker's open yesterday, as he confirmed my take away form the four hours or so of testimony I caught on Wednesday in bits in pieces.

I told my husband yesterday that I thought Cohen been brought on to soften the blow to the Lefties from the Mueller report--that that was my take away.To my hear, Cohen completely discredited any collusion, usually in response to Ds very specific questions. It so undermined the "Russia, Russia, Russia" story that I thought it had to be intentional on their part.

You know , that "Never ask a question you don't already know the answer to.
Plus, he testified that he met with Schiff and Cummings to prep!
Yes, he said that.
No, NYT did not headline it...


And as Tucker notes, that "conversion" experience was not only incredible---as NOT Credible---but not in Cohen's "voice" either. Kind like Obama's book that Ayers supposedly wrote, which doesn't sound Obama in the least. .Catsmeat or CH can better explain that voice. Seemed like very slack effort to me. But why good playwrites and screen writers are good --they capture the different characters voice.
That did NOT happen yesterday

But I am grateful for this confirmation, because you'd never know the above from what I caught of the standard source news yesterday.

It's the first day of meteorological spring.

Minneapolis is forecast to get 6" of meteorological spring snow starting this morning and continuing throughout the day.

Just wanted to respond to mm's link about 6 last night on cruz offering up federal tax credits involving voluntary contributions to a scholarship funds. Georgia has something similar with a cap, and private school teachers tell me its passage was the end of their autonomy in teaching, especially with a traditional emphasis. Even one of those students accepted binds the entire school to oversight in a different way.

I would be very surprised if ted does not know that. Right now there are still some ports in the storm, but the template is that all types of school will be on similar, student-centered aims, beyond the superficial level that gets pitched to parents as 'choice'.

It's not just that I believe it is coordinated. It's that I watch the heritage or homeschool defense fund employees attending unesco or oecd conferences that I shouldn't be aware of.

Anyone else ever had their cats do an eowyn and the hobbit vs the big elephant seen as they were simply going down the stairs? Cats assumed I was going down to feed them last night and darted to the side of one leg and then in front of me. Good thing I was holding the railing.

Special moment. My next door neighbor in Fla kept a morgan in her garage purchased on a family trip to england where I guess they toured the factory. My girls loved that car. It seemed like a toy to them and their size when they were young.

Interesting note on what I just said about that federal deduction Cruz offered up, it coincides with this article http://oecdeducationtoday.blogspot.com/2019/02/un-sustainable-development-goal-education-sdg-4-oecd.html that came out yesterday.

That kind of federal tax provision, like the state programs it is tied to will pull those schools into these SDG outcomes, but parents won't see that if they even notice the changes. I was just reading the underlying brief and the necessary competencies and character traits students must come to exhibit.

Re the photo Pin posted (from CPAC?) @ 1:29 - “It’s time for conservatives to support paid family leave.”

No, it is absolutely, positively fucking NOT. It is one for college servatives to vocally, aggressively, unapologetically support radically lower taxes, smaller government and reduced regulations, and to oppose government policies and social pressures that dramatically increase the costs of raising children, while reducing the rights of parents to raise children according to their values and conscience.

Doing that would make it far easier for families to raise children on one salary, so the other parent can stay home wit the children, which of course eliminates the need for paid parental leave.

Why is this complicated?
